Green is kind of the "it" word these days. Every product at the grocery store claims to be it, every politician claims to want it and every soccer mom in a Prius claims to live it. Here in the Duke City, we are consistently rated near the top of every list chronicling the greenest cities in the nation. Despite that abysmal "Q" branding, Albuquerque's enviro-friendly image is a commendable badge to carry. So just how green are we, really? Let Burque put its money where its mouth is during the U.S. Green Building Council's Sustainability Week. Running June 11 through 19, check out a slew of environmentally sound events throughout the city and state. For a complete schedule of events, visit usgbcnm.org.

My favorite Vietnamese restaurants are the durable type. With worn floors, and few frills beyond a TV on mute and perhaps a jungle of real and fake plants, those tired-looking dives are often full of Vietnamese customers, and for good reason. They serve the real stuff, unfiltered and unedited for an American audience.
